Health Beat: How to Boost Your Immune System When Traveling

How to boost your immune system while traveling

The following tips come from Dr. Nancy Evans of the Holtorf Medical Group.

1. Sleep is the most important immune-system booster we have, during which our bodies produce melatonin, a vital antioxidant. Consider using a melatonin supplement (1-3 mg) nightly while away.

2. Probiotics help protect the digestive tract from bad bacteria; find a commercial brand and take daily while on the road.

3. Vitamin D helps prevent many autoimmune disorders; take a supplement along with you and try to get some sun between sessions.

4. Seating choice
is important in meeting rooms. Look for snifflers and coughers, then sit elsewhere.
